Chocolate, Chocolate and More Chocolate!

After looking at My Carolina Kitchen and loving all of her beautiful Valentine desserts, I looked at the calendar and was shocked!  I have not given any thought to our menu and since I have been trying to avoid sweets....well, I hadn't thought about that either!   Since I am a firm believer that on occasion one must have dessert first, I decided to start with chocolate...who needs to watch weight on Valentine's Day!!

I am sharing some of my favorite chocolate desserts with you and at the same time trying to decide which one I will make for Love Day!


This Devil's Food Cake Verrine recipe is four layers of delicious chocolate: chocolate sauce, chocolate cake, chocolate mousse and chocolate streusel.  It was so worth the effort.....and accompanied by a nice port....it was heavenly!


If time is a factor, these little Two Bite Chocolate Cream Pies are delightful morsels.  Sometimes, just a taste is all I need!  You can find the recipe for these adorable fellow right here.


If you are looking for something a little different these Mexican Chocolate Brownies are for you. They were absolutely amazing!  These are a dessert that keeps reappearing, at our house!


Sometimes less is more....and, just a little bite will do.  These Double Chocolate Sugar Cookies were absolutely wonderful and certainly addressed the chocolate craving around our house.

I hope you Valentine's Day is extra special!

I am participating in Full Plate Thursday hosted by Miz Helen's Country Cottage.
